James left Giradia Group safe and sound.
Everyone knew Wendy had encountered a life–and–death crisis that James undoubtedly planned, although there was no evidence. But James came unashamedly and left safely.
It cast a shadow over the employees of Giradia Group. Undoubtedly, James‘ in and out dealt a blow to their spirits.
Moses put Wendy’s pencil on the table, shook his head doubtfully, and said, “It’s a pity…”
Wendy pursed her lips and silently pinned the pencil to her hair.
“He did it on purpose,” Wendy took a deep breath and said, “He was like coming to declare his victory. He even made me do something to him. He must have some backup means.”
Moses smiled. Obviously, Wendy also realized she should have calmed down.
Moses said calmly, “He came wearing a bulletproof vest, but you didn’t see it. Based on your shooting, it might be very difficult to get a headshot.”
Wendy frowned, but it was expected.
“He was very angry but didn’t make a move. It’s a pity.” Wendy flicked the pencil on the back of her head and said with some regret.
She knew Moses wanted to provoke James and make him attack in anger. Therefore, she was very cooperative and even made cooperative actions and expressions when Moses teased her.
Those actions undoubtedly made James angrier. But James remained calm and left safely.
Wendy suddenly gritted her teeth fiercely and said, “He dared to threaten me with Rayburn!”
Moses knew Rayburn was Wendy’s most cherished elder for the rest of her life. Although he was not a relative, he was closer than relatives. Moreover, with James‘ character, he could turn verbal threats into actual actions.
“He won’t have a chance to make a move. After tonight, he is a dead man,” Moses glanced at Wendy and said expressionlessly.
Wendy heaved a sigh of relief and nodded.
“I also respect Rayburn,” Moses added as if to say he didn’t take the risk for Wendy.
After Wendy heard her redundant supplement, she curled her lips in disdain and frowned with displeasure. He was gilding the lily.
Wendy turned on her tablet computer and explained her thinking to Barne.
Moses didn’t know much about business. But Wendy explained it in detail and used a lot of analogies so that he, a layman, could understand clearly. And he couldn’t help but marvel at Wendy’s astonishing talent.
“You won’t betray me.” It sounded like she was stating instead of asking.
Some people only had their best interests in mind.
Moses invested 50 billion dollars, which could take the Porter Group alliance down. The benefits were huge enough to turn father against son and make brother fight against brother.
After Moses listened, he was startled and then smiled, “How can a person who has lost everything betray another person who has nothing? What’s more, I’m a man, and you’re a woman who can please any man. So it’s an idiot question!”
Wendy was happy to hear that. She had an intuition that Moses would not betray her but she still asked him. Because she was a businesswoman, she couldn’t always do things by intuition.
Wendy took a deep breath, turned her head to look at Abraham, and said seriously, “If you don’t let me down, after it’s over… The Giradia Group is your most loyal partner and strongest backing! Even if you want to fight against gods, Giradia Group will never back down.”
Wendy’s words made Moses feel comfortable.
He helped Wendy for a purpose. Although he didn’t expect others to return favors, he never wanted to meet ungrateful people.
Wendy knew exactly who and what kind of power Moses would encounter. But she still said so forcefully and resolutely. Many men would be impressed with her attractiveness.
“Do you know what you mean by what you said?” Moses wanted to make sure.
“We have nothing to lose,” Wendy said calmly.
Moses smiled with satisfaction. Wendy’s words represented a change in her mentality.
She might no longer regard the Giradia Group as a continuation of her parents‘ lives. And it wouldn’t be the responsibility and burden that made her breathless. Yesterday’s drink was not in vain.
“You look really cute when you’re drunk. We can drink together again after we’re done this time. There is a barrel of Bordeaux wine in your wine cellar. It’s a pity to keep it…” Moses laughed and walked toward the office door.
Wendy said, “If we win, we’ll drink the wine. If we lose, we’ll still drink it!”
She was dashing, making Moses like her even more.
There was boldness in Wendy, which was like a man would find his confidant at the cost of someone else’s life. Her boldness was created by years of depression. It was like a superior man who kept his weapon concealed and waited for the proper time to move. The infinite repression created Wendy’s astonishing boldness.
“Wait for my good news. I’ll avenge you,” Moses blinked, waved his hand, and left the office.
Wendy sat quietly, realizing the difference in her mentality. The rare joy and the feeling of throwing away all the pressure made her feel hearty!
As soon as Moses came out of Wendy’s office, he received a greeting call from Hannah.
“I heard Ms. Giradia was assassinated and almost died. Is it true?” Hannah said hastily.
“Yes… But luckily, she had me,” Moses said complacently.
“Are you by her side? That’s good… Were you injured?” Hannah asked.
Moses said, “I’m fine. Well… I have to ask you something.”
Hannah was confused.
“Do you know where James lives?” asked Barne.
Hannah was surprised, “What do you want?”
Moses smiled and said slowly, “Of course, I’ll chop off his head to avenge Wendy!”
It rained heavily, and the weather cooled down in the afternoon.
As Moses said, it was a dark night.
